Forbes and Inglis Part 1: Chairman: respond to gentleman from VA comment about Mr. Snowden. We’d be happy to have it. John Inglis: We do not have any evidence that Mr. Snowden abused the program as we have defined it today He may have abused his trust in disclosing classified details of the program. Forbes: in all Due respect, and I said I wasn’t going to yell at you, I’ll try not to yell at you, but that is exactly what the American people are really worried about.

CSPAN 07/17/2013
Forbes and Inglis Part 2: Forbes: and for the life of me, I do don’t understand how you guys parse that issue that’s there. That’s what is infuriating the American people. They’re understanding that if you collect this amount of data, people can get access to it and it can be use it in ways that can to harm them not just the United States of America. And that’s what's concerning them, I think in a lot of areas and I hope we can get a more elaborate response for the record

NSA Deputy Director
CSPAN 07/17/2013
Inglis and Jackson Part 1: Can I just add, the court is also given permission to not just first hop analysis, meaning what numbers are in contact with that selector, but to then from those numbers, go out two or three hops. In many of the cases that Ms. Douglas referenced earlier, was at the second hop, it was at that second connection that something of interest came that then caused federal Bureau of investigation to apply their resources to essentially uncover or add additional information for terrorist activity. Jackson Lee: once you do the query out of the 300, what is the next steps?
John Inglis
NSA Deputy Director
CSPAN 07/17/2013
Inglis and Jackson Part 2: Inglis: So that query when it is returned, it could be a first hop query or a second hop query, or a third hop query, that information is then reviewed by the National Security Agency analyst and a report would be written and disseminated to federal bureau of investigation if we see something that would be of interest to them. In many cases, when a query is performed nothing of consequence turns up. No connections that are untoward turn up.

Chaffetz: So but If you are standing out in public any number of other people may see you there. Chaffetz: if I were standing on private property -- Cole: this is part of what Jones talks about, the trespass issue. Chaffetz: they ruled 5-0 it was an overstep and an overreach. So Are you collecting that data? Cole: we are not collecting that data. Chaffetz: let me ask the NSA. Is the NSA collecting this data? Inglis: We are not collecting that data under this program. We believe that the authority
